I am a bay area native who preferentially would live out the rest of her life there.
I would like to be in a relationship where we could always be teaching each other things. Ideally, we would make each other better people. We'd have the same sense of humor. I needs me some jokes. We'd also have the same outlook on life, ie: it's not about money or prestige, but love and family.
My ideal partner would be supportive of me, no matter what. I'm all for gender-equality yada yada, but I am greatly appreciative of chivalry. If I get in a bar fight, I need to know that you got my back.
